I’m writing this from my parent’s dining table in Brisbane.
It’s Friday 25 December 2015. It’s Christmas Day.
Merry Christmas 😃🎁🎅🎄⭐🌟🖖
My flight from Canberra to Brisbane departed shortly after 9 am. I enjoyed meeting some friends at the airport before boarding which was great.
My flight was uneventful and smooth. I was surprised how full the flight was. I managed to get an aisle seat with no one next to me so that was a plus.
The Brisbane roads were pretty barren so the journey to my parent’s place was very quick.
It was good to see Mum and Dad. It’s been a few months since I last visited. I’ve been busy with work and trying to save a little money.
As soon as I arrived mum had me preparing coleslaw. I made it with a special surprise. I added some fried shallots and crushed Queensland nuts (Macadamia). Mum had two chickens (chooks) in the oven full of her stuffing which I love. Mum made a green salad with hard boiled eggs, mango and avocado. We also had smashed potatoes (spuds). Dr48 (my middle brother) was due to arrive with roast pork and crackling, chicken wings, Moreton Bay bugs, Endeavour prawns and a lobster. Mum made a seafood sauce to go with all the seafood. Dr48’s wife (SIL) brought along a pavlova (you know that Australian invention that people from New Zealand claim they invented).
I feel so full. I had three plates of lunch followed by a big slice of pavlova with ice cream.
It’s been a good day. It was good seeing my brothers. It was good seeing Mum and Dad.
I feel so full. I’m not having any dinner. I think if I tried eating more I’d make myself feel sick.
I hope you had a great Christmas Day.
